Yesterday, I believe I have read, on The Riddle Sandbox, that a riddle reaching a vote of 7 could make it to the main site. So far, so good. And I remember that the sandbox answer should be cleaned, leaving only the title of the riddle linked to main site, and the answer deleted. I could not find that mention today. What is the suggested course of action?
There is no official procedure. The status quo has been to delete them from the sandbox when they're posted on main. This has the benefits of:
- Keeping clutter in the sandbox to a minimum (it has a lot of answers)
- Keeping people who see the puzzle on main from going to the sandbox to try to find the answer (or clues to the answer).
The downside of this is that the revision history and comments of the riddle are lost, so no one can see how the riddle was improved and learn from the process.
